Even though Halloween is a little bit annoying in Germany, I’m still excited about this holiday because it’s Theo’s first.
Last week, I did a quick little sewing project to make him a special onesie for today, since his first costume is store-bought. It’s funny how “mom guilt” can creep up on you when it’s not even warranted. Anyway, it’s better this way. As you can see, the zebra suit is still too big, so he’ll be able to wear it for a while longer because it’s not too costume-y.
Back to the Halloween is annoying in Germany thing – I know pranks and stuff happen in the States too, but when kids say, “Trick or treat!” they get their treat and go. They don’t actually trick anyone who doesn’t shell out candy. But here…I’m not sure if it’s more adults or kids doing this…but the next day, if you’re unlucky, you’ll find someone has smeared doorknobs with shaving cream or ketchup. Not cool, Germany. Not cool.
Anyway, Happy Halloween! I’m not sure if we’ll get any trick-or-treaters tonight, but I’ll make sure we have some candy just in case.
Taking pictures of Theo was funny today. He was tired and was not so happy I put the zebra costume on him at first…
Hmm…not so sure…
I’m tired, Mom!
Ahh, the pacifier. Now I can zone out for a bit…
Two minutes later…zzzzzzz(ebra)
And 20 minutes later, awake and ready to continue the photo shoot!
Now I’m much happier!
